Edward II is a Renaissance or Early Modern period play written by Christopher Marlowe. The full title of the first publication is The Troublesome Reign and Lamentable Death of Edward the Second, King of England, with the Tragical Fall of Proud Mortimer. Marlowe was the second child and eldest son of John Marlowe, a Canterbury shoemaker. Nothing is known of his first schooling, but on Jan. 14, 1579, he entered the King’s School, Canterbury, as a scholar.

Enter QUEEN ISABELLA and the younger MORTIMER.
Y. Mor. Fair Isabel, now have we our desire;
The proud corrupters of the light-brain'd king
Have done their homage to the lofty gallows,
And he himself lies in captivity.
Be rul'd by me, and we will rule the realm:
In any case take heed of childish fear,
For now we hold an old wolf by the ears,
That, if he slip, will seize upon us both,
And gripe the sorer, being grip'd himself.

Christopher Marlowe brought something to the Elizabethan stage which it had lacked: nothing less than genius. First of all, for iambic pentameter so rhythmic and vigorous (Ben Jonson called it "Marlowe's mighty line"), it almost reads itself, which is one reason the occasional formatting slip and lack of notes in this Gutenberg edition are barely noticeable.

Shakespeare took much from Marlowe. From this play, the dramatic compression of historical events. But Shakespeare in his plays at least, never portrayed a man's passionate love for another man as boldly as Marlowe does here:

Enter GAVESTON. K. Edw. My Gaveston! Welcome to Tynmouth! welcome to thy friend!
Thy absence made me droop and pine away;
For, as the lovers of fair Danaë,
When she was lock'd up in a brazen tower,
Desir'd her more, and wax'd outrageous,
So did it fare with me: and now thy sight
Is sweeter far than was thy parting hence
Bitter and irksome to my sobbing heart.

Gav. Sweet lord and king, your speech preventeth mine;
Yet have I words left to express my joy:
The shepherd, nipt with biting winter's rage,
Frolics not more to see the painted spring
Than I do to behold your majesty.

The depiction of Edward's degradation and murder in the last act was years ahead of its time. The villain Lightborn is truly Jacobean. That this pitiable scene is otherwise surrounded by camp proves that Marlowe knew (instinctively?) when to 'sink' it. It was a pleasure to re-read this after many years.

I liked reading this play very much. The play was composed by Christopher Marlowe. Marlowe was a contemporary of Shakespeare. Marlowe seems to have led a complicated life and died young under questionable circumstances.

Marlowe and other playwrights including Shakespeare influenced each other. It is this that makes Marlowe's plays interesting to me. I also found this play quite readable compared to some of Shakespeare's plays, at least his later plays, for which I often need study guides.

As I do with other plays, I read the script and then downloaded an audio version. I listened to the audio version and enjoyed the entire exercise very much. This has also added much to my studying of Shakespeare. Thank You.

Of course, Edward the Second is a wonderful play. I realize that I downloaded the free version, but it wasn't broken up into acts or scenes, and some parts were lumped together instead of written like a play. It was hard to figure out who was talking often because of the abbreviations used for speakers names. It got the job done, but it was hard to read during class because of this. If you're reading this because of a class, it might be easier to buy the paperback copy, or look up the ending points of each act and mark them on the digital copy, which was what I did.

Marlowe is a major dramatist, The dialogue bristles with energy, and the characters are well-drawn even though they may not be historically accurate. A fine play that should be performed often.

At 82 I am finally getting around to reading Marlowe and Shakespeare plays as part of our OSHER lifelong learning program. Edward II is part of a "weak kings" offering. A bit of an off colored book that one does not need to hide under the mattress.
Great introdutions for a novice like myself.

MARLOW IS NOT AS GOOD AS SHAKESPEARE, YET HE BELONGS IN HIS COMPANY AND IN THE COMPANY OF BEN JOHNSON THESE ARE THE GREAT ENGLISH DRAMATIC MASTERS.

Amazing, as always.
Great edition of this English classic. I read it the first time in high school and thus time for fun. Enjoyed it much more the second time.
